Remote Control Flying Cat

5 06 2012

Yes, this is real!  As in, this is an actual, deceased pet cat that was stuffed by a taxidermist and then built into a remote control quad copter – a helicopter type aircraft with four smaller rotors.

I spotted this on the L.A. Times website but I have since seen it elsewhere and even heard a bit on NPR about it this morning.

The builder is a Dutch artist who was also the cat’s owner. The cat was called Orville (as in Wright), and he is posthumously called the Orvillecopter:

Check out the test flight:

I’m not exactly sure how to feel about this one. Certainly it is unique!  And kind of funny.  And of course morbid/unsettling.

Haha I agree but that is not mine, just something I found online.
